I just reproduced the steps needed to do this, last two steps may be the interesting ones:
Open Google Chrome (v39)
Start a large download (http://ipv4.download.thinkbroadband.com/1GB.zip)
Wait a moment (it took some seconds for a notification to appear)
Pull down the notification bar and click on the download entry
You are taken to the download manager
Yes. You can take either of the following two approaches:
Use tubemate. With this app you can browse YouTube and download the video just like you would download from websites like keepvid.com.
The latest version of YouTube allows the videos that you opened or YouTube thinks you'll watch or have added to watch later queue to be downloaded in background so ...
Not entirely sure what it does. Never really looked into it. But I just cleared data/cache for my download manager on my Nexus 6 and all my downloaded files are still there. Edit Just to clarify, the downloads are still there if you navigate to the folder with a file manager. However they no longer show up in the "Downloads" app.
Device: Nexus 6
Though not the identical issue, the solution provided with the question Download stuck in Gmail solves it as well:
Clear the cache of the Download manager. To do so, go to Settings→Apps→Manage Apps, switch to the "All" Tab, scroll to the "Download Manager". Tap that entry, and hit the button labeled "Clear Cache". Optionally, also tap "Clear Data",...
Android has a "defaults"-system for handling predefined requests such as opening a URL or pressing the home button. If you go into Android's System Settings -> Apps -> Android Download Manager and scroll down to "LAUNCH BY DEFAULT", you should see a button to clear the defaults. The next time you open your chrome browser and tap on a URL that has the <a ...
I tried to download the link using Chrome for Android SEVERAL times, but it always disappears. Like I've been telling myself before, Android for Chrome is not mature enough and lacking in (so many) features.
I would suggest installing a 3rd-party browser like Dolphin or Boat, which are both highly-customizable. I downloaded the MP3 file successfully using ...
Lucky for me, my router has a connection log, that I could look through.
From my phone that was trying to download an app, there were many connections, but these brought up my interest:

My big brother has the same phone (ASUS Zenfone Max). He installed an app where he can send built in apps to other devices via APK. So he sent the Download Manager APK on my phone, tried to install it but the "com.android.providers.downloads is not working" still keept popping out. In the end I decided to Factory Reset my phone. And it worked.
My phone is ...
You could try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue:

Freezing/ or disabling such can result in failed downloads.

For you to download on schedule, ADM requires a running service program. Make sure you do not close the service after you have enabled your scheduler
You can do this by:
Giving ADM a higher memory priority (so that it will not be killed when system memory is low)
Whitelisting ADM in phone's power saving features, task killers or hibenation programs
I solved this by installing Opera Classic 12.1. Single-clicking the "Download" link prompted me to open the file via Google Music or via Opera. Selecting Opera started the file downloading via Opera's built-in download manager.
Quite a fail for Chrome :(
A factory reset does not touch the system partition, so built in apps such as the built in Download manager will not get touched. Perhaps you used a different web browser before the factory reset you performed, and that had better download management than the one you are currently using.
If you download ES File Explorer from the play store, you can use the ...
It's not available because you have an old version of the TI firmware in your SensorTag. Some months ago they added the "Connection control service" to the SensorTag firmware to enable OAD with Android. If your firmware is not recent, it has the OAD Service but not the Connection Control Service, so you'll have to use iOS to to OAD.
Best variant, combining most of your wishes: FolderSync. I'm using it myself (Pro version after having tested it one day), and I'm very fond of it. You can setup multiple folder pairs (which folder on your device should be synchronized with which folder on the "other end") for multiple "accounts", where an "account" simply identifies "the other end". That ...
Summing up the solution from above comments on the question itself:
Finding the culprit
First step is to get to the logging information on your device, to figure out some more details on what's going on. Multiple choices to do so:
get a logcat app from the Playstore. There are many, and as long as you run Android 4.0 or below, none of them have issues. ...
While you intend to replace the stock download manager, but keep access to Google Play Store, since it's your trusted market, before that, you should try to find the reason as to why are you having troubles downloading apps:
Troubleshooting Download Issues
Is the device supported by Google Play Store?
You can confirm this from the Supported Devices List ...

I used to use Tubemate. It has many options, one of which is the ability to download the audio part alone so that you can also just listen to the video rather than watch it.
I later implemented a YouTube downloader script in my browser app. It has a flaw though - new videos loaded in the same page will not update the download link.
The Google Play ...
